Širok Sokak Street in Bitola
Bitola, one of Macedonia’s largest towns, was known as the “City of Consuls,” because in the Ottoman era, twelve countries kept consulates here. Perched on a 2,000-foot plateau at the foot of Baba Mountain, Bitola is best-known for the nearby ruins of Heraclea. Its long pedestrian Širok Sokak Street overflows with shops, cafés and neo-classical buildings.
